The Controversy
"Queen of Chinatown"
Alternative



Will mesmerise you and whisk you away to the nearest bar when you need it the most.  

Slow and enchanting, very easy on the ear.

Evokes that crucial moment when you realise you've just had that one too many, and you're not sorry.

Ahead of the release of their highly anticipated upcoming album, we are taking time out to celebrate one of The Controversy's most played records, "Queen of Chinatown". The Los Angeles trio shot to independent music superstardom back in 2011 and there has yet to be anyone like them till this day. This is the type of music you hear playing in your head when you are about to really let go on a good night out - everything's moving really slow, everyone's looking really sexy, the drinks seem to be flowing too slowly but in reality you're just drinking too fast, the music sounds so far away yet you feel it so deep within, the beat is soft yet it's pumping life into your soul as adrenaline rushes through your veins in all the right places, it seems like the track just never ends verse after verse.

It sounds artificial yet so organic at the same time. 

One of those tracks that always makes it into very last slot of every weekend music playlist. 

Please remember to always drink responsibly.

Amycanbe
"Being a Grown-Up Sure is Complicated"
Alternative Rock


So good all you can say is, more.

Anything this good has got to be illegal.


Versace, Armani, and then there was Amycanbe - what will Italian craftsmanship bring us next?

It's a sound that can only be described as a designer sound, and Amycanbe's exceptional artistry has been emulated for years but never duplicated.

In today's busy, fast-paced world, with limitless information traveling around the globe at amazing speeds, where you can miss an important tweet from the president or a life changing opportunity if you even blink or put your phone down for a second, no one wants to spend valuable time looking for a good album or band to listen to. This is where this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (yes, that's a word) Italian band comes in handy every single time. Amycanbe is one of those bands that never disappoints. Their sound is consistent yet guarantees to take you somewhere new and exciting with every new release. It's been years since the release of this mind-boggling 13 track album and it is still getting talked about more than some of the latest alternative rock releases out now. This is one of those albums that never gets a chance to be rejected - it's one of those "play on sight" albums - if you're scrolling through your music collection looking for something really, really good to listen to, you'll see it and instantly hit the play button, regardless of what mood you were in when you started out.

It's deeply satisfying and thoroughly entertaining, meaningful all the way through, insightful, intelligent, conceptual, chic, sexy (of course) and it will make you feel like you've just turned 18 all over again.

Coolidge
"Red Alert!"
Hip Hop


That Oomph! your hip hop collection has been lacking.


Music producers, engineers and high end studio gear is what makes many of his competitors look good, but with Coolidge, it's almost as if it's the other way around. His lyrical content, masterful flows and overall vocal delivery, his immense passion, his demeanour and of course his sub-zero cool are the stars of every record whether it's his or he's collaborating. He is one of those artists that can make a hit without a beat. This track hasn't even officially been released yet and it's causing more chaos in the world of hip hop than some of the top hip hop tracks enjoying bountiful promotion in the mainstream. If you intend to listen to this track with an open mind, you risk blowing a fuse in your delicate auditory circuits.

"Never Give Up"
Reggae


A must have for every self-respecting music playlist.

We all need at least one positive, motivational track like this in our music playlists, especially in these difficult times. There are just not enough of them out there nowadays, at a time when they are needed the most. This one's an oldie having been released over 5 years back but it has stood the test of time as has Honorebel himself, who has become one of the only independent artists in the world who has collaborated with almost every US mainstream urban music artist out there from Rihanna and Akon to Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, Sean Kingston, Pitbull who he has worked with several times and continues to collaborate with being a fellow Miami artist, Flo Rida, Major Lazer, and the list just goes on and on and on. This track is also very special because it has now become very rare to hear a song with only him on the track, and as infectious and loved as his collabos are, his solo tracks are nothing short of magical.

Let this be your Christmas present (don't worry there's more to come), a gift of strength to carry on even in the toughest times. Stay strong, and may all your dreams come true in 2019.

A really rude awakening. 

Will snatch your soul, and then hand it back gently.

Not for the faint-hearted.


One of those records that will have you re-evaluating your musical tastes and questioning what you've been calling good music for a very long time.


Buckets N Joints is a band from Tel Aviv, Israel. They made their debut as an independent self-managed band back in 2012 and have been gigging vigorously in and around the region every since, playing up to 80 shows or more a year. To cut a long story short, they mean business, and by the time you are done listening to them you probably will too.

"Bells, Bells, Bells"
R&B


A Christmas song that won't make you cringe.

We're all sick of Christmas songs. They're too slow, sad as hell, and they all sound the same. Not to mention they are painful reminders that it's time to give away all our hard earned cash in form of gifts we'll spend precious hours shopping for, only to get socks and the wrong size of underwear in return.

Dorothy Milone's version of "Jingle Bells" couldn't have come at a better time. It's the opposite of the average Xmas record - fun, snappy, exciting, happy, sexy and most importantly, bassy.

Treat your ears to something new this Christmas.

Gentle, warm, inviting.

Pleasing to the ear in every respect.

Simple is always good, this is excellent.


Ahead of the release of his upcoming self-titled album on January 7, 2019, we are revisiting Michigan, US independent pop sensation, Trevor Ohlsen's August, 2018 release, "All Over Again", which is still getting a lot of attention from local and national radio and press months on.

Amongst many high praises, the track has been hailed for it simplicity. Trevor paints a vivid picture of teenage love with words ever so carefully crafted backed by instrumentation that takes the listener away to a happy place where time stops and only love matters. The official music video was released just over a week ago [watch official music video below].

That New York sound hip hop has missed so much

This week on the Skunk Radio Live Auditions, we heard from Gary G, an upcoming rapper from New York, USA who has just released his latest single, "Ey Day".

The track is very unique production-wise and really stands out with a very distinctive New York vibe reminiscent of the likes of Notorious B.I.G.

An exceptional performance by Gary gives the track a very urgent feel. It's packed with hungry, passionate relentless rhyme flows that'll put fire in your soul.

"Gimme Money For Christmas"

Feel-good pop at its best

A Christmas song that'll keep a smile on your face all year.

A song for habitual socks givers. 


A subtle hint goes a long way.

Genuine, original, feel-good pop has taken the back seat over the past few decades, but Milwaukee, US band, Ian and the Dream have done well to keep it alive, at least in the world of indie music since they made their debut a few years back. Their critically acclaimed Christmas song, "Give Me Money for Christmas" set records last year as one of the most streamed independent Christmas releases in the region and is poised to do it again this year.

If you are in the habit of giving socks and underwear for Christmas, this should do well to remind you not to. But more importantly, this is a Christmas song that is guaranteed not to put a frown on your face on those grumpy days when things are not going your way during the holiday season.

 Have a wonderful Christmas!

Will do things to your ears that'll make your toes curl.

Smooth, elegant and mild.


A deceptively low key album that will sweep you off your feet when you least expect it and rock your ear lobes till you are screaming out Waa-wi.

Tate's latest album shows the immense progress she has made and particularly the exponential changes that have happened sonically, visually, lyrically and production-wise over the past year alone.

For fans who have watched the young independent Los Angeles star grow progressively and blossom into what we see and hear today it's more than could have been expected, asked of, wished for or even dreamed of, and then some more. For the unsuspecting indie music lover stumbling upon it, it's an intense eargasm that will leave a massive stain.

Put your feet up, relax and cosy up to this warm, inviting, mildly sensual album and let it rock your world.

"TRIPPIN"
Hip Hop


Checkmate!

So lush

On election day, November 6, Durt Boi made his final move in a what could have only been described as a hostile takeover of the South. The US ex-army service man has been on a war path to eliminate any competition standing in the way of the (his) hip hop crown since the beginning of the year and the results have left many a mind boggled. After years of artistic development, Durt Boi's sound has gone from exceptional to just plain out-of-this-world.

"Trippin", while probably not his last in his series of back-to-back hits this year, certainly feels like the climax of an era and the beginning of a whole new phase in the independent Tennessee rap star's illustrious career.

Production-wise the track is lush and crisp with a virtuosic beat that will keep your head ringing. The overall track has a deeply infectious vibe that makes is a top contender for the clubs. It's effortlessly masterful, lyrically sound, not overly pompous as is the case with many rap songs nowadays, authentic, and most of all, you won't feel dirty afterwards like you would after listening to a nice Drake or Kanye West record.

The song has already turned a lot of ears in the industry, critics are going nuts, DJs are super excited and fans are raving, to say the least.

Will lasso the moon for you

Forget about whispering sweet nothings, throw on this album and you are guaranteed to set the mood right for nothing but good loving.

Whether you like to waltz around a spacious room with your special someone, you like nothing more than to put your feet up and hold hands side by side, or you prefer to be lip-locked all night long, or whatever secret pleasures you like to indulge in behind closed doors or in the open, it's got 10 gorgeously written and performed tracks that will serenade you and take you to the moon and back if you can't bring it to you.

It's elegant, it's got that old school cool, it's warm and inviting, jazzy and packed with soul. The album saw to it that Crissi became a multiplatinum indie artist within a year of its release and it features the critically acclaimed singles "Sleep in the Wild" and "Pretty Words" which played a big part in making it happen.

This month, "Little Sway" is being officially re-released in Italy owing to popular demand and other regions of the world may follow suit and give Crissi her well deserved place on the international stage before long, but for now she remains Canada's top independent soul music artist and one of the top indie artists in the world.

A sigh of relief.

A musical journey back in time to the days of childhood innocence.

Something to help you remember the simple pleasures of life.


With so much drama in the world today it's so refreshing to know there are artists out there who are still taking time out to cater to the needs of the inner children in all of us.

With a kiddies theme all the way through, you can be sure you won't be hearing much about adult problems or anything that will get any stressful thoughts and worries creeping in throughout what can only be described as an utterly refreshing and revitalising listening experience.

This deceptively low key album has got 10 stress free tracks that together make valium look like a tic tac. It's a sure way to get a load off your mind, not to mention, it's great for kids as well.

"Worth It"
R&B


Slow and sensual, no strings attached.

One of those tracks that'll remind you why you fell in love with R&B. If your baby making playlist has been lacking that really innocent, lush sound that makes you want to get oiled up then you are in for a treat.

"Worth It", California, US R&B artist, Tate's latest single was released only a few days ago but it's already got fans raving far and wide not just in the US, but in the UK and beyond as well. It comes only a couple of weeks after and follows in the footsteps of "Fresh", its predecessor which still has top US DJs and critics going bonkers. Tate's sound is a simple yet hard to come by sound. It's raw, passionate, warm, very inviting, and often with a raunchy or adult theme, but it's also got a really innocent, youthful and gentle feel that makes it almost feel wrong, and hence it's even more compelling to listen to. Don't worry, she's not underage.

"Worth It" is a track about friends with benefits and no strings fun. It's got a really dark, sensual backdrop that sets a really passionate mood. You'll feel like a virgin again, but not for long hopefully.

"Up Early"
Hip Hop


Supercharge your alarm radio with this.

Find your inner superman, early in the morning.

If you hate getting up in the morning... well, you've probably got some serious issues and we won't be able to help you there. Try listening to some Skunk Radio Live for an hour or two and see if the lack of mindless pop eases your mind and sedates you but if it doesn't work please see a real doctor. We'd invite you to join our club but it's a secret club and we're full. If on the other hand, your problem is that you hate getting up early, then this song should change all that.

Stick this in your alarm clock and you'll be flying into the office or school on cloud nine everyday ready for whatever the world throws at you without a care in the world.

Sitting comfortably at track number 5 on Elohim Fre$hy's latest album, "Return of the Gods", it's one of those hip hop tracks that will make you want to re-evaluate the state of hip hop today and point the finger at your sources rather than condeming the genre as a whole. Maybe you've been looking in all the wrong places for good hip hop, or good music in general - you won't find it on MTV or BET, but don't worry, you're in the right place now.

"Up Early" is not just a great record, it's a compelling record with a soothing, repetitive feel that is so intoxicating and exciting that it makes you want to listen to it over and over without ever stopping. It's one of those records that'll drive a DJ totally insane, in a good way.

Production-wise, it has a very light, airy feel, almost like the inside of a big tin can. It's super bright with rattling hats that'll get your blood rushing with excitement. Lyrically, it goes without being said that DedFre$h, who is now better known as Elohim Fre$hy came more forcefully than a teenager on Horny Goat Weed. It's been a while since he released a full length project and he did well to make "Return of the Gods" count. "Up Early" stood out for many critics and fans as one of the top tracks on the record but the whole album is packed with surprises.

"Truth Be Told"
Alternative Rock


The way you feel when the truth sets you free.

If you've never told the truth, or for some reason you hate doing it, here's a song that'll give you a taste of what it feels like.

Regardless of what your mood is when you hit the play button, this track will instantaneously whisk you away to a place where your troubles will never find you - a happy, mysterious, serene place where only inner peace reigns.

If you've got a playlist for serious hair pulling moments, this should be track number one on that playlist. It's simple, spacious and easy on the ear, and will sooth your mind and caress your soul while leaving you ample space to breathe deeply and flap your wings freely as you float away into outer space.

"Breathe"
Pop


Exciting, refreshing and uplifing.

If really infectious, meaningful feel-good pop is what you are into then you'll hardly ever need to look any further than indie pop band, Ian and the Dreams' well-sized discography, which is packed with exactly that. They've been Milwaukee, USA's top indie pop band since they made their debut and it doesn't look like that's about to change anytime soon.

"Breathe" is one of those songs you can just throw on at any time of the day or night, put your feet up, and well, just breathe. It's exciting and it'll have you humming along and playing your air guitar to in no time.

"Everyday Thoughts"
Pop


Funky.

An exciting, fiery track with an infectious groove, a hint of disco and passion like Michael Jackson. You'll feel the rhythm deep in your belly.

Ivan is an upcoming artist from Kiev, Ukraine and he's hitting all the right notes. We had the opportunity to explore his discography this week on the Skunk Radio Live Auditions, and this one particularly stood out and received a lot of praise for obvious reasons. This is one of those tracks that'll make you feel alive again like you haven't done in a long time. It's refreshing, authentic and will get you on your feet every single time.

"Cauchemars"
Instrumental/Experimental


A Nightmare You'll Cherish Forever.

Virtuoso redefined.

Epic!

A truly monumental album. 

Will make you throw away all your top new mainstream pop albums.

All the amazing sounds you never knew your music collection was missing.

"Cauchemars" is a concept album centered around a character's evolution through the course of a nightmare. This is one of those albums you'll shut the whole world out to enjoy like a monkey does a well deserved banana at lunch time.

Yes, it's that good.

In fact it's so good that it would seem as though its creator, Belgian experimental artist, Seiswork was reluctant to share it with the world since it was created back in 2011/2012 after 3 years of hard labor and yet many of even the most devout music fans are yet to hear it. The 6 track album was only released on Soundcloud for public listening a few days ago and it is doing amazing things for today's starving music fans who seem to have long forgotten the depths real creativity can take the mind to.

If you are one of those music fans that likes to treat yourself to some good sounds when you've been amazing then this will really make your day.

If you are a starving music fan desperate for a good eargasm then prepare to have your socks blown off.

If you are just a humble mainstream pop music fan looking for something new and exciting to listen to then keep away from this album, it will raise your bar for good music so high you'll never be impressed by your favorite pop artists' best works ever again.

"Viral"
Hip Hop


Sitting comfortably just before the climax of Mississippi, US underground rap star, Drevo Coolidge's Summer, 2018 mixtape, "Viral" is another one of those tracks that shows Drevo's versatility and explores his musicial abilities from yet another angle - this one's a little raunchy - okay a lot - alright it's downright filthy and may even leave a nasty (or fishy) smell and taste in your mouth, but you'll love it nevertheless.

Very explicit from start to finish, and NOT safe for work at all, but apart from that it's a pretty solid track. The song is free along with the whole mixtape, "Music Therapy". Download it on Spinrilla.

Heartbreakers only.

Bermudian R&B artist, Brixx and Mississippi rapper, Coolidge made magic together on this track. It's smooth R&B and smooth rap all mixed in nicely with a warm, ever so inviting backdrop to create a really chilled, slow, mildy sensual, soulful, passionate and infectious vibe.
